Boston United’s youthful squad will have the hunger to succeed - says new signing Courtney Wildin.

The 20-year-old has no qualms about linking up with the Pilgrims’ youngsters for the upcoming National League North campaign.

Indeed, he believes that the fearlesness of youth, mixed with the desire to suceed, will help the Pilgrims in their quest for promotion.

“Younger players are more hungry,” said the former Sheffield Wednesday and Aston Villa player. “They still have that desire to work hard because they want to be professional footballers.

“I think it’s a good thing to be playing with a younger squad.”

Summer signings Kalern Thomas, Callum Chippendale, Joe Maguire, Herve Pepe-Ngoma and Wildin himself are all aged 25 and below.

Meanwhile, squad members Grant Roberts, Cameron Johnson, Kaine Felix, Lewis Hilliard, Jay Rollins and Joe Burgess also fit into that category.

Shane Clarke, Waide Fairhurst and Nat Brown meanwhile add some experienced heads to the dressing room.

Despite only just linking up with Dennis Greene’s side, Wildin says promotion is his main aim for the next campaign.

He added: “One-hundred per cent, that’s my aim.

“It’s my ambition to be a professional footballer and have a career.

“I think it’s the same for everyone at Boston.

“We can only do that by playing well and being successful.”
